Finding Inner Strength
Monday, March 11, 2013
I had an emotional upset yesterday that actually made me lose my hunger (appetite sounds better but I had no hunger). I don't remember the last time I was so upset that I had NO desire to eat. I actually had to force myself to eat a little bit for lunch and dinner so that I wouldn't get a migraine from low blood sugar. It was kind of nice in a way, not having any desire for food, but I would not recommend that kind of stress in order to avoid eating.
This is going to be a continual source of stress in my life for a while, not of my doing, but you don't abandon your friends when the going gets rough. I am glad I have responded by losing my appetite instead of turning to emotional eating. I am going to have to stay on top of my eating and exercise to make sure I do not allow this to affect my life changes for the negative. I have to find a way to be supportive without sabotaging my own life changing progress.
I am a strong person and I can do this!
